Changes, changes, everywhere!

I am not a fan of changes. I just don't like them. I like things as I like them which is the same! The expected, the known. There is no room for fear, no room for uncertainty. But unfortunately....the Fall of 2012 has brought many changes. As we head into September, my head's spinning with even the thought of what is going on. So today, I'm going to take a minute to explain some things that have been happening on this end (why I've been so MIA). Alicia's gone to college....BIG change. Though she's only about an hour and a half away and only been gone five days so far, BIG change. She's moving on, growing up, meeting SO many new people, having a great time. She'll be fine, she'll do great. I'm kind of scared she's really going to move on. I'm not returning to Colby-Sawyer College. I worked my hardest, but my hardest wasn't enough apparently. On top of that, they said they needed the money for the freshmen. Without financial aid, they expected me to pay $25,000 per semester to continue my education there. So I gave up my education (there), my two best friends who just so happened to be my roommates this year, my other friends, some of the freedom I was starting to feel! Now I will be going to the Community College of Vermont, working more hours at the Co-op, and living at home....alone with my mom. BIG change. Work is even different than before! We have five new people and lost more than that off to college. BIG change getting to know all these new people and get used to a whole new set of coworkers. I trained one of my friends sisters today and she'll do just fine, but it's hard work training! Lol I don't like change....I really just don't. I try to be open minded, but man, I do have a hard time with it. So for now, I am going to try to implement something that is OLD, something that is PREDICTABLE, something FEARLESS. I am hoping that this is the first of many blog posts because you know what I realized tonight in the shower? Lol good place, huh? I realized that blogging has always made me so....happy. I truly enjoy it. I've made terrific friends through it that I never would have otherwise. I love writing, expressing myself, being my own person! So I hope that you all will be seeing me more this upcoming fall. I hope you're all okay with that :) Love, love, love! I haven't forgotten ANY of you!! Hannah
